started the fire instead of trying to put the fire out. >> we tried to get change cpi, and harry reid took it off the table. and the president claims he wants change cpi, but is harry reid more powerful than barack obama? >> that's a good question. >> no, it's not. no, harry reid is not a more powerful guy. but i do agree in the end, if the president will stop demagoguing, and if he'll stop running a presidential campaign, a permanent campaign that david brooks is talking about, al, i think you're right. i think the president, at the end, may actually make some decisions that will upset his own base, change cpi, on hopefully -- hopefully he won't take paul krugman's position and say we'll worry about medicare in 2025 when it starts to melt down. hopefully he'll be a little more responsible than that. i think he will. >> yes. >> but the problem, i think, goes back to mika's point. in all of the attacking the president, he has a plan on the table. you can say is demagoguing. the revenues that he's putting on the table from the taxes add up. the republicans have just come back saying, we're n

republicans passed so many things that just never see the light of day. and harry reid's senate. but the way things used to work, you used to pass things in the house, and then the senate would pass things. and then when harold and i at least were in washington in the '90s, then you go to conference committee, and they battle it out. that doesn't happen if harry reid doesn't pass things in the senate. he is the president's pocket veto. >> the step you're missing in that is -- and kevin mccarthy's interview proves that denial is not simply a river in egypt -- there's no conference committee. >> can i -- hold on. hold on. >> that's a good one. that was so fancy. >> is not just a river in egypt. >> that's what he does now. >> that's something brad pitt would say in one of those chanel ads. >> let's call brad. >> standing against the wall wearing nothing. >> he's wearing the sweater. >> go like this. >> you can't get away with saying things like that on this show. >> i want to hear his vision. >> why? more "morning joe." >> i know you're way above the cliche. i'm sorry. >> stupid cliche. >> what

he's got nothing to lay on harry reid's desk or the president's desk and say this is our position. what's your position? let's work it out. caller: good morning. first off i would just like to say that i never hear any moderation from the republican party. and i think they do that because if they showed any moderation they wouldn't get reelect bid the conservatives in this country. they wouldn't have their support. and that's all this is all about is the social conservatives trying to change what's legal now. basically abortion. what's not legal, gay rights. you know. they're completely -- forget and realize that the mid until this country wants us to be a little more progressive. why won't you all speak out and take those issues off the platform, the abortion issues and gay rights, take that off your platform and show some moderation? don't be so extreme in your point of view on the right. and then maybe the left will give in just a little bit also and we can all live in the middle again. because that's what we need. host: thanks for call. guest: that is a great call. i have to d

pelosi, harry reid. therein lies the potential problem where the more moderate democrats are going to have to step aside and stand down. >> and you look at that $4 trillion number. in the president's proposal is also including things like interest savings, more savings that are set to wind down anyway, and you look at the $4 trillion. it really only stabilizes debt to gdp ratio over the next decade or so off panama. the entitlement spending, medicare, medicaid, not doing their analysis of what the ten years after the next decade look like when it comes to the full entitlement boom that goes on from there, there are some major deficit and debt problems that are going to hit the federal budget in just the next 10-15 years alone. so the whole debate as to how big a problem deficit reduction is, jay carney a couple of weeks ago said it is not a goal of itself. just deficit reduction. i think the president clarified that a little bit this evening with a comment you just mentioned, neil. there is that question about whether and that democrats are all that serious about deficit reduct

the day he got in the senate, he was bored. harry reid said, you don't like it here, you're bored here. why don't you run for president? >> he was considerably more politic about how he spent his short time in the senate. >> talking about barack obama's pathway he wasn't worried about that, he wasn't worried about building bridges, right? >> no, but he found a way to get along with his fellow senators as did hillary clinton who came along having greater ambitions, but careful to go step by step and not to seem bigger for her britches than she wanted to seem. >> this is an odd way to last in washington. we'll see how he does. >> lindsey graham said you get respect in the senate if you can throw a punch and you have to show you can make a deal. ted cruz has thrown lots of punches and hasn't shown he can legislate or endure. this remains to be seen. >>> and at the white house to deliver remarks on billions of dollars on automatic budget cuts set to kick in next friday. according to administration officials, the president will challenge republicans to make a quote simple choice between pro

harry reid, eric cantor there. and members of congress. these are coveted seats. just saying before the president was introduced here, there has been all this advanced notice that the president will be sort of keeping with his confident, even arguably aggressive tone that he has taken since his reelection. the quote that stood out for me from politico this week, it was assigned to a person close to the drafting of the speech. >> right. >> said the president's approach to the republican party in this speech would be borrowed from the 2500-year-old chinese book philosophy "the art of war." and the quote was "build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across." . >> i like the quote. and i think that would be probably a good strategy for the president. i mean, i would hope that we don't see a lot of partisan bickering, but i hope he is aggressive in terms of the proposals that he is going to lay out. this being his last term, most people say 18 months and then you start looking lame duck. so very important speech as to what his presidency and his legacy is going to mean. and i think
